Hi David,

Sounds good! I'm glad there was no problem with the idea of having Mark on
the program! By the way, I haven't heard anything about the Blind Driver
Challenge project lately either, and I'm an NFB member! <Smile!>

I don't have a problem with that, and I will try to reach him this week and
see if I can setup a time for an interview with him.  I would like to know
what is going on with the project too.  It doesn't seem that we have heard a
lot about it lately.

I will let the list know when I have an interview setup.

Thanks,
